History Leading to The Disqualification Proceedings | Kangs Insolvency Solicitors

On 15 January 2018, Carillion Plc (‘the company’), went into Compulsory Liquidation and the Official Receiver was appointed Liquidator.                    

During the course of the liquidation, the Official Receiver investigated the events leading to the company’s failure and the conduct of the directors and others throughout this period.

Upon conclusion of the investigation, the Official Receiver submitted an adverse report to the Secretary of State who, having considered it carefully, determined it to be expedient in the Public interest for eight directors, both former and current to be made subject to Director Disqualification Proceedings alleging that their conduct fell below that required of directors to the extent that they should be barred from further involvement in the management of a company.
